[MONTREAL] According to the press release I just got: Concordia communication students showcase their work at this year's advanced film production screening.
Students in the Film III (Advanced Film Production) course will be showcasing their work at Concordia University's H-110 auditorium in the Hall building located at 1455 De Maisonneuve on Thursday May 4, 2006 . The doors will open at 7:30 pm. There will be a total of nine short films, all of which were produced over the last 8 months and shot on 16mm color film.
The films to be screened are an eclectic bunch, ranging from dark comedy to suspense to musical documentary. The program includes the visually-captivating coming-of-age short, Josh and Elias, featuring music by Montreal artists Jason Bajada and The Adam Brown. As well as Early Bird Special, which takes a peculiar twist in a satire about a jug-band record collector. While the unconventional documentary Dumpster Divers, sings along with tunes on recycling garbage.
The Department of Communications Studies at Concordia University is well known as one of the leading programs of its kind in North America. Many of the student filmmakers in this year's class are no strangers to the festival circuit. Some have already had work in the Montreal World Film Festival and Toronto's Student Shorts. The May 4th premiere is expected to be the start of a lengthy screening run in Montreal and abroad.
